1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: 101 Ways to Continue Crafting Without Breaking The Bank on: March 27, 2011 11:08:11 AM
This is probably a stretch for most, but I'm a bit of a treasure hunter.  I have family and friends that live in the country on land that's been inhabited for at least 100 years.  When the weather is cold enough to keep the bugs and snakes to a minimum, I go digging around in the woods for old trash piles (ppl used to be such litterbugs!).  I've found everything from glass coke bottles and old china tea cups to kitchen utensils and car parts.  The busted up china turns into mosaic, kitchen utensils get cleaned up and decorate my kitchen walls, old canning jars have a million crafty uses, and so on.  The only thing it costs me is a little gas money and a few hours of my time.  I've also been lucky enough to make some spending money from some of my finds (old coins, civil war relics, etc).  Just be careful of snakes, don't trespass on private property, and refill any holes you dig.

What about bath salts/sugar scrub?  Seems like this would be one of the easiest things to do for a group of girls since you can make it all at once and divide it into cute little containers.  I don't sew, but I imagine making 5-10 purses is gonna be a lot of work, especially if they won't even appreciate it?
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Alternatives to Styrofoam Balls on: November 30, 2010 06:59:46 AM
Dollar store!  I saw some of those ornaments there the other day that are just styrofoam balls covered in some kind of thread.  They were 4 to a pack so they would only be .25 each!

These are so pretty!  I have some sea glass that I want to make myself something out of, but I don't want to wire wrap it.  How did you get holes in yours?

I vote for A.  And I have to second the tea dying idea, that would look amazing!

These are so pretty! I had to stop hitting my local Claire's after they stopped doing the 10/$5.  I used to find all kinds of sterling charms and earrings in there for just 50 cents, man I miss those days.

I usually don't care much for steampunk stuff, but this is one so feminine!  I really like all of these but the steampunky one is my favorite.

  O this looks interesting, might have to give it a try! Wink  Would look great in black and hot pink.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's your weird guilty pleasure? on: January 09, 2010 10:44:54 AM
There was some talk about allergies earlier.  I'm allergic to fake cinnamon, like from big red gum and red hots.  And I'm not allowed to eat bananas anymore cuz I have crazy high potassium and crazy low sodium levels, so alot of my guilty pleasures are super salty:
Pickles with chicken soup (more notably, pouring pickle juice into the soup)
Pretzels (rods) with yellow mustard
Fried pickles
Fritos with cheez wiz
Chipped beef gravy or sausage gravy over torn up bread or toast
Grits made with bacon fat (don't really do this anymore, just sprinkle bacon into my grits)
Corned beef hash WELL DONE so its crispy, mixed with corn and an egg over easy on top so the runny yolk mixes with all the crispy hash yummyness

I also make "heart attack sandwiches."  Split 2 beef hot dogs in half lengthwise and fry them up.  Layer cheddar cheese on a slice of bread, put the fried hot dogs on top, and put another layer of cheese and the other slice of bread on that.  Fry it up like a grilled cheese and omnomnomnomnom
My grandmother used to crumble cornbread into a glass and pour milk over it and eat it with a spoon. blech, great way to ruin good cornbread!
